STACY GUTKOWSKI » Welcome to Mrs. Gutkowski's Fab Fourth Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Gutkowski's Fab Fourth Grade

welcome back
A little about me. I attended Olinda myself, many, many years ago... I loved being an Olinda Eagle so much I decided I wanted to teach here! I happily lived in Brea for 40 years, where my 3 boys attended school through High School. I believe there is no better city to raise your kiddos in! My husband and I recently started a new, empty-nester stage in life and have moved to a condo in Anaheim Hills. Such a different lifestyle, but we are slowly acclimating =)  My two oldest sons have graduated from college and are living their adult lives. My oldest got married last September, my middle is getting married in May of 2020. He and his fiancé are living a happy life in Fort Worth, Texas. My youngest is a senior at Ohio State, enjoying life as a Buckeye - graduating this December!
